10 Seriously Sublime Bags For A Weekend Away

The best travel companion is a beautiful (and funny) woman (or man) by your side. Barring that, the second best travel companion is endless top shelf alcohol served in first class. And barring that, the next best travel companion is a great piece of luggage. Here are our picks for ten of the most best holdall bags for your next weekend away:


Weekend Bag #1 – Valextra Logo Embroidered Holdall
Founded in Milan in 1937, Valextra became an internationally renowned luxury maison. Artisanal techniques, timeless style, fresh color palettes, and fine leather come together to create pieces like the Logo Embroidered Holdall. The blend of a black and white pattern with orange grained leather trim makes for a very sophisticated travel accessory.  (Price: $2,302.00 BUY)


Weekend Bag #2 – J.Crew Abingdon Waxed Cotton-Canvas And Leather Holdall
This one looks like it could stand up to some serious wear and tear. The J.Crew Abingdon Waxed Cotton-Canvas And Leather Holdall is spacious and tough. Though it was inspired by vintage hunting gear, it’s equally suited to accompanying you on your latest weekend getaway. With an 85 litre capacity, it even gives Mary Poppins’ bag a run for its money.  (Price: $300.00 BUY)


Weekend Bag #3 – Givenchy Army Green Leather-Trimmed Nightingale Duffle Bag
Army green could easily fall too far on the casual side, but Givenchy’s Army Green Leather-Trimmed Nightingale Duffle Bag is all class. The canvas makes it tough, but the chocolate brown leather trim keeps it chic and upscale. And in case anyone doubts that you’ve got a totally up-market sense of style, you can prove them wrong with the embossed signature logo.  (Price: $1,965.00 BUY)



Weekend Bag #4 – WANT Les Essentiels De La Vie Large Fabric Bag
WANT Les Essentiels De La Vie made their name designing fashionable and functional pieces for the refined traveler, so you can bet they’ve earned a spot on this list. The Large Fabric Bag is a black and white cotton patterned number with black leather trim. The minimal branding favored by the famed label is limited to a small logo detail under the handles.  (Price: £366.00 BUY)


Weekend Bag #5 – Mulberry Henry Textured Nylon Bag
Mulberry’s bags are some of the most famous in the world, so of course we had to include one here. The bag in question is the Henry Textured Nylon Bag, an understated take on the weekender. The specially treated black woven-nylon is durable and waterproof, and finished off with black leather trim and a detachable shoulder strap.  (Price: $780.00 BUY)


Weekend Bag #6 – Dsquared2 Black Patent Grained Structured Dante Duffle Bag
Dsquared2 has created the doctor’s bag 2.0. The Black Patent Grained Structured Dante Duffle Bag resembles the classic physician’s accessory, but updates it for a contemporary audience. The large structured bag features textured leather throughout with matte leather trimmings and silver-tone hardware.  (Price: $875.00 BUY)


Weekend Bag #7 – J.Crew Rail And Wharf 48-Hour Duffel
J.Crew’s do-it-all duffel is a travel companion that can go anywhere. The Rail And Wharf 48-Hour Duffel is a casual piece, inspired by vintage workwear and old-school seafaring style. The blue/natural/red color scheme is subtly nautical, but not over the top. You can also personalize it with monogramming and embossing.  (Price: $188.00 BUY)


Weekend Bag #8 – Mulberry Clipper Leather Holdall
Another entry from Mulberry, the only designer so formidable they make it on the list twice. The Clipper Leather Holdall isn’t a cheap addition to your accessories collection, but it’s a handsome one. An exquisite tan-brown leather exterior and suede lining make for a very spacious and luxurious sidekick during your travels.  (Price: $2,100.00 BUY)


Weekend Bag #9 – A.P.C. Navy Blue Cotton And Leather Duffle Bag
There’s a nice mix of materials in the A.P.C. Navy Blue Cotton And Leather Duffle Bag. First there’s the supple cotton of the body, which has a distressed denim-esque look, and then there’s the tonal suede trimming, which makes for a nice change from the standard leather trimming. The colors are also a welcome departure from all the black bags.  (Price: $370.00 BUY)


Weekend Bag #10 – Rag & Bone Camel Brown Canvas Keeley Duffle Bag
The Rag & Bone Camel Brown Canvas Keeley Duffle Bag is to die for. Restrained, elegant, timeless…it’s the kind of luggage that makes your trip better just by existing. The only downside to carrying a bag this nice is that, at the end of a long and tedious journey, it’s bound to look 10x more polished than you do.  (Price: $385.00 BUY)
